Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" Hale
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Nate Dogg has died at age 41. His near monotone crooning anchored some of rap's most seminal songs and helped define the sound of West coast hip-hop.

Attorney Mark Geragos says the artist died Tuesday of complications from multiple strokes. Nate Dogg's real name was Nathaniel D. Hale.

He wasn't a rapper, but he was an integral figure in the genre. His voice was featured on hits including Warren G's "Regulate," 50 Cent's "21 Questions," Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode" and countless others.

A void has opened that will never be filled. The thought of you being "gone" albeit merely the physical, at times seems too much to bear. My heart goes out to your family and breaks for your beloved friends Snoop, Warren, and countless others. You were a force to be reckoned with a beautiful man with a unique melodious flow. You were an originator and there will never be another who compares to you. I love you Nate, rest in eternal peace .

To the Hale Family
Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal. I know because i have been dealing with my own losses and i know that God will heal the broken hearted if you just lean on him. It takes a minute but the seconds, minutes, hours and days do make a difference. Lean on God and he will bring you through. And if you dont know GOD today is an excellent day to begin to learn about his mercies.
I Loved you man on 21 questions
rest in peace Dogg

Dear Hale Family,

May you find comfort in these difficult times. My heart goes out to you.I'm a fan of Nate Dogg's music. I grew up listening to him in the 90's (my childhood). He will be dearly missed by his family,friends, & fans. Hip-Hop/Rap has lost another legend. My mother is even a fan, and she's old school. May you rest in peace Mr.Nathaniel Hale a.k.a. Nate Dogg. I know God has called you home to sing with the angels, other lost loved ones, and Himself. G-Funk forever! God bless your family. Much love from the Mid-West! <3 R.I.P. Nate Dogg!

I absolutely adored you. I thought you were a most beautiful man, with a most beautiful voice. To your family, I am so sorry for your loss. My prayer is that you are finally at peace, with no worries, no pain. I pray that you are now in a place where your body is strong again, your heart beats loudly and your spirit is soaring, and your voice..that beautiful voice is singing solo for the angels. I really do have so much love for you Nate, rest in peace.

I'm not one to blog or comment openly online but for a man who's entire body of work I have admired since my early teens', I felt it necessary. Whenever I listen to music I remember where I was when I first hear it and so many great memories come to mind when listening to anything Nate sang. When I learned his father was a pastor and church gave him his first listening to harmony I was very impressed. His voice is always synonymous with good times with friends, bbq's on Sunday, and just's always rollin' through LA with him singing a soundtrack. I still can't believe your gone but I believe everything happens for a reason and wherever Nate's at he's doing his thing like only he can. My condolences to the family and close friends. Thank the Nate, and God Bless.

Times like this make us sad. But, there is "a time to weep." (Ecclesiastes 3:4). Yet you can have the hope of seeing your love one again. Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled." –(John 14:27) Sometimes we may feel paralyzed by a tragedy such as this. Remember, God can help you to endure any and every problem you may face. He will give you “power beyond what is normal" to go from one day to the next. (2Corinthian 4:7)
Family you have my deepest sympathy.
